The Path Worth Taking

For years, I had hid my pain from those around me.

Flash a smile

and suddenly the endless questions and prying stop. But then someone came and noticed the hurt in my eyes. They saw past the fake smiles, and the tough attitude. They began to ask me questions I believed I was not ready to deal with; questions that started me on a

journey to find myself.

At the time, I hated being questioned or pushed toward the door of healing. I truly believed that I was not ready and I could not let go of the hurt, the anger, and frustration. Looking back, I am so glad they did. If they had ignored it, I would not be

who I am now.

Who are the people in your life who have lead you towards the road of recovery? Take a moment to thank them today.

Author’s Note: I wanted to take this time to say thank you for all those who have been here to help me towards my road of recovery. You know who you are.  I could never have done this without you. I love you so very much.
